I am an evolutionary and computational behavioral scientist with a background in Psychology and Anthropology. My research broadly focuses on the individual-level learning processes and population-level social dynamics underlying human cultural adaptation. I mostly use behavioral group experiments, computational and statistical modeling as well as formal mathematical theory to better understand the unique adaptability of our species. At the moment, I am developing a causal inference framework for generalizability in cross-cultural research. I am also a committee member of the Early-career Social Learning Researchers (ESLR) society.
